More than a quarter of a million Aucklanders are about to be hit in the pocket when they receive their rates bill in the coming week.
While the overall average rise is 3.6 percent, those in some areas will be stuck with an 8.1 percent rates increase.
Other areas will see a decrease.
Auckland Mayor Len Brown spoke with Firstline's Rachel Smalley this morning.

Expect greater wage demands.A glut in properties as the baby boomer retirees sell up there million dollar properties, a collapse of the watre front rental apartments, as no one will be able to afford to rent them.By 2015 Auckland will be the world most expensive city to live in, good one Len.It might be easier just to go to Aussie.

If you want to blame anyone, blame Rodney Hyde for putting the suggestion of a Super City to Parliament and John Key for saying why not - Len Brown is trying to do a job.

If Len Brown had half a brain he would still be dangerous. The so called "super city" united to save money has now increased rates way over the rate of inflation and he is only warming up. You fools elected him, as they say, "you made your bed, now lie in it".

Stop wasting money on non-infrastructure items Len. Simple as that. Rates are too high already compared to incomes.
